Comrades (The Flemish Beerdrinker)

From Harry’s place:

Zimbabwean President Robert Mugabe expressed his satisfaction over his official visit to Cuba which finished on Tuesday. Minutes before boarding the plane, President Mugabe told the press that his visit allowed an exchange of ideas with his comrade President Fidel Castro and expressed his gratitude for the Cuban medical personnel working in his country. After praising the work of almost 200 Cuban medical personnel in Zimbabwe, the African leader ratified his country’s solidarity with the island’s Revolution and its leaders and condemned Washington’s blockade against Cuba.

According to the latest Human Development Report the human develoment index of Zimbabwe went down from 0,640 in 1985 to 0,505 in 2003. It’s very unlikely things have improved since then. And it has been catched up by countries like aids-torn Uganda, Togo, failed state Congo and genocidal Sudan. Nice friends you have, Fidel.
